Steinberg UR44 USB 2.0 Audio Interface

The perfect balance between connectivity and portability: the UR44 is a powerful audio/MIDI interface designed to suit a huge range of recording and production situations. Four mic preamps, six inputs, four output channels, MIDI I/O ports, onboard DSP power and full iPad connectivity offer an outstandingly flexible feature set.

The advanced portable production studio

Today’s musicians and producers demand outstanding quality, sleek design, the latest in audio technology and enough I/O capability to provide true flexibility while still being fully portable and rugged enough to withstand the challenges of the road.

First-class components

The UR44 is unique in its combination of input and output capabilities, stellar component quality and portability. Four Neutrik analog combo inputs with peak LEDs and switchable +48 V phantom power provide inputs for everything from an electric guitar through line-level audio equipment to boutique condenser microphones. Switchable Hi-Z support means no additional DI box is required to hook up your electric guitar or bass. Two additional line inputs allow connection of an extra audio source in combination with four mic preamps giving you a total of six input channels; that’s enough to handle a huge range of recording situations.

This unique interface also brings you the advantages of latency-free monitoring powered by the dspMixFx application and offering DSP-powered FX, letting you record with compression, EQ, reverb and guitar amp simulation on the headphone mix. And if you’re using Cubase, all this functionality is integrated directly into the Cubase mixer and custom Cubase windows. For composers and producers using MIDI equipment like keyboards or pad controllers, the UR44 provides MIDI I/O ports on the back panel.

Upwardly mobile

The UR44 is a unique production system as it puts first-class audio technology and outstanding sound quality in a rugged portable device that gives you enough I/O capability for complete flexibility: Recording live performances, producing in studio quality at home or in a hotel room, pre-production for your next album in your rehearsal space, playing back audio backing tracks on stage… The UR44 means no compromises — you can keep your options open at all times. Enjoy the audio quality and advanced features of first-class, studio-ready components housed within an interface portable enough to accompany you wherever you and your music happen to be.

Everywhere UR

With its unique balance of portability and I/O capability, the UR44 may be among the most flexible devices of its kind available today. Four mic preamps, a total of six input channels, two headphone outputs, a MIDI port, iPad connectivity and four output channels mean that you’re equipped to handle a huge range of recording and production scenarios.

Project studios

While smaller project studios might not need a huge analog desk or dozens of inputs, they do require outstanding audio quality and the ability to record a wide range of musicians, vocalists and other audio sources. Phantom power for highest quality condenser mics is just as important as a feature as the ability to connect several pairs of monitors for A/B-ing mixes on different speaker combinations. Need to quickly record guitar to add to your score or song? Just plug in a guitar to a Hi-Z input and record your guitar with DSP FX and no latency. Record all your digital instruments and connect MIDI controller keyboards to completely integrate all your gear in one compact, portable interface.
